Biography

From the jungles of South East Asia to the desert of Southern California, Life Leone


has gleaned from his extensive travels a sound of classic exploration, familiarly 


expansive yet utterly unique. Tinged with desert rock, Life’s music is a direct 


embodiment of his own transcontinental journey, rooted in straightforward rock 


and roll. But that classic tradition should come as no surprise, considering Life’s first 


guitar lesson came from a Kink.


Life Leone’s story starts in Laos, where the spiritual stallion was born while his 


parents were stationed there on a volunteer mission. A distinctive birthplace 


without doubt, the family uprooted themselves to raise Life in the desert community 


of Joshua Tree, California. It’s here that the rebellious teenager happened to meet 


Nicky Hopkins, legendary guitarist for The Kinks, who taught Life the basics needed 


to peak his interest music. Mastering a few licks later, there was no turning back: he 


was hooked on rock and roll.


Widening his influences but honing in his craft, Life was quickly drawn to punk, 


grunge, and garage rock. Before long, he was playing with influential locals acts in 


and around the Coachella Valley; at 17 he was touring with desert-rock pioneers Slo 


Burn. Then, after a move to L.A., he fronted the anthemic indie-rock outfit The Ross 


Sea Party, painstakingly recording and touring to achieve his artistic vision.


Yet in a cathartic wave of introspection and driven passion, Life Leone reinvented 


himself yet again, moving to Vietnam to work as a guitar craftsman. This eastern 


influence led to a furious drive of creativity, with Life writing new material 


vigorously. There was no denying his work’s desert origins, even in the far east. 


Hence, Leone once more circled back home to California to complete a truly 


remarkable full LP.


Life Leone began to perfect his sound: tight chords, sharp tones, and raw, magnetic 


energy permeating. Straightforward drums and deliciously fuzzed out guitars 


layered with catchy, acerbic vocals. Life rounds out a classic garage rock sound 


with approachability, stripping away any nonsensical frills that cause pointless 


distraction. 


No, instead Life Leone gives you well thought out rock and roll. Brilliantly structured 


with masterful hooks, his debut album Comes Crashing In was released on vinyl this 


past July to high critical acclaim. Now, Life Leone is prepping a west coast tour to 


showcase his unquestionable talent, pairing it with a ethereal light show and stage 


performance. And thus continues this esteemed musician’s ongoing journey.
